Rove Bargaining Report #17

March 14th 2024

Over the last 2 weeks we have met with the company 3 times.

The company still has not yet answered the neutrality and cardcheck proposal that was reintroduced, and though they complained about not being successful hiring in the Minnesota call center, they gutted the majority and rejected one of the proposals the Union passed to help bring in quality candidates.

The company rejected sick and safe time because they rolled it into their Paid Time Off (PTO) proposal. Someone dies? Give up Vacation time to grieve the loss. Need to care for sick kid or parent? Give up Vacation time. Got raped? Beat? Yep, that's what your vacation time (PTO) is for. Sound empathetic?

Good thing the bargaining team all got a copy of the book!
